HC Deb 10 May 1888 vol 325 c1812
MR. HAYDEN (Leitrim, S.)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether he has received a Memorial from the people of Carrigallen, asking to have a telegraph office provided for that town; and, whether, considering that the connection with the nearest wire would only entail a comparatively trifling expense, he will see his way to grant the request of the Memorialists, who represent all classes of the community?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

Yes, Sir; I have received the Memorial to which the hon. Member refers; but I fear it may not be possible to establish a telegraph office at Carrigallen, except under guarantee. I have called for fresh Reports on the subject; and I shall be pleased to communicate the result to him as soon as I receive them.
